Default froze wrong app! help!

So I froze google search and now my nexus 5 wont boot up. it just sits at boot logo. any ideas how to undo this? I have TWRP installed so I can access the files thru its file manager. is there a way to undo that setting by deleting the settings file for titanium backup?

Just sideload the stock system in twrp
Also Google search shouldn't stop the phone booting :-\

You definitely did something else, google search did not just magically decide that it wanted to freeze and not work.

I've been looking into this. Titanium uses the native package installer using "pm disable" command but I haven't located a database that pm uses to store this.

The command can be done via adb but not via recovery (At least not on my rom). You must be booted into android (not much help).... So it looks liek factory reset would be the only real way to undo it.

That said, like others said - freezing google search is unlikely to cause this issue.
Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

Try and find a launcher in .zip format for installing via recovery

That wont help.

However I think I have the answer.

mount /data via recovery menu and connect to PC and open a command propt

Code:
adb pull /data/system/users/0/package-restrictions.xml c:\users\rootsi\desktop
Open package-restrictions.xml and locate your package that is probably enabled=3, then set as enabled=1

Code:
adb push c:\users\rootsu\desktop\package-restrictions.xml /data/system/users/0/

It might work because only the stock launcher requires Google search and settings to work

Flashing a launcher wont change the default app used for launchers.

It would do if the phone could boot


Anyway it's academic since he can simply unfreeze the app
